Greetings Sisters and Brothers

Our family entered into contest put on by Pioneer Seeds this summer/fall named Here’s to Hometowns.  Each entrant had to make a video stating what they would do to help their community and how they would spend $50,000 in their community.  Pioneer have judged the videos and from the 39 entered, our video has made the final 4, of that 2 will win $50,000 each.  The winners will be determined strictly by public voting.

We will split our winnings into 5 separate projects: Hickson School, Lions Club, Hickson Firefighters, Oxford Mental Health and our own Field of Dreams, each getting $10,000.  Even though our video is based upon Hickson, but Oxford County was hit hard over the past few years by teenage suicides; therefore $10,000 will be given to Oxford County Mental Health – for programs directly aimed at teenage suicide prevention.

Voting is easy, no email or contact information is required, it is literally a 3 second voting process.  Our video is called Here’s to Hickson:

  1. Click on the link https://go.pioneer.com/heres-to-hometowns#finalists

You can vote once a day, every day until December 10th.  Please help us out and vote every day.  If you belong to other organizations or groups, please pass this on.  We appreciated any support we receive.

Thank you in advance

Mike & Jennifer Van Boekel and family
